I have a 96 and an 01, go under the truck from behind the drivers side front tire, the drain plug is at the back of the oil pan just behind front skid plate, the oli filter is right behind the front bumper , there is a trap door to get to the filter, but that's only for 4x4 or awd modle's, 2wd filter's are on the drivers side of the enging infront of the starter

Where are the freeze out plugs located on a 1998 Jimmy 4 wheel drive.


The freeze plugs are located on the very side of the engine block and on these should be 3 per side. Locate the oil pan and look about 4-6" up and you will see them. What kind of problems are you having?

How do i check fluid in in rearend on a 1998 GMC jimmy


On most differentials, there is a plug. It will have a square recess in the plug. Using a 3/8" ratchet and extension, place the extension in the plug and turn counter-clockwise to remove. (No socket required, just the extension.)

On most vehicles, the oil should be just below the level of the hole. I have relatively small hands, I just use my little finger to check the level of oil.

In past, I always used 90 weight gear oil to bring level of, but depending on your differential, you may need a special oil. (My 2001 Tahoe with locking differential used a synthetic oil. The dimwits at the oil change place added regular 90 weight oil, even after I told them not to, had to have dealer drain, and replace.)

Can't locate Oil Plug underneath


it's easy to tell the difference, the trans pan is very flat and square. The oil pan is also square but it it not as wide, it is taller and goes higher up into the engine area than the trans. Good luck
